“Sufi Wisdom”

“Rumi scanned the faces of all his guests. He smiled in an utterly childlike, innocent manner. “It is unimportant for us to put all these labels, these words, on things. The labels are, after all, the problem in the first place. We separate ourselves from God’s Being by constantly attaching words to what we ought best to simply love and accept. All those qualities you mentioned are important, of course. Denial of the ego means denial of the isolated self. Poverty helps keep us from falling into the trap of wealth lust. Generosity is simply sharing the gifts that God is constantly lavishing upon us. Ecstatic experience is the true nature of life. It is not meant to be a dull and boring affair, now, is it?” His smile lit up the room and brought returning smiles to the face of the friends.”

Richard Maddox

Richard Dietrich Maddox's writing focuses on the search for permanent happiness, the goal of finding paradise on earth, the attainment of human Enlightenment. His work, though fiction, attempts to convey the profound spiritual Truth passed on to humanity by Enlightened Masters. Maddox approaches spiritual wisdom from a Western level of experience, presenting characters to whom readers can easily relate, offering situations in which readers might well have found themselves. His work offers, in a style which those living in the West will find understandable, the possibility of blissful existence.
